    Hey people,
    Anyone know how to get an intern license, especially from out of state? My interviewers encouraged me to get one before school resumes in the fall.
    Thanks

    Let us know what state you are from and we can guide you from there; each state has different laws!

    Start with the state board of pharmacy for whichever state you are wanting to be licensed in. They should have a website with the requirements.

    I asked this same question on the KY Intern thread, but:

    Here is the GA Intern License Application:

    http://www.sos.state.ga.us/acrobat/P...on%20Sheet.pdf

    If I am going to be going to school in another state, should i still apply for a GA intern license for this summer? It says i have to work atleast 20 hours per week minimum but i have a full time job right now from 7:15 am - 4:15 pm. I also volunteer in the hospital pharmacy (grady) sometimes too after work. I guess i just need to talk to my pharmacy supervisor. :confused:

    what do ya'll think?

    I read the application and it does indeed say that the minimum number of hours that will be accepted is 20 per week. I don't know what to tell you other than if you want to work as an Intern in Georgia you'll have to meet the 20 hour per week minimum. Does Georgia license technicians, if so that might be an option for you if you want to continue to work but aren't able to meet the 20 hour minimum.

    thank you,

    after reading your response i searched some more and found my own answer :rolleyes: ( i know) - excerpt taken from (http://www.state.ar.us/asbp/pdf/intern/complete_intern_packet_03.pdf)

    "Hours worked in another state ​
    [FONT=FBDKOJ+TimesNewRoman,Times New Roman]
    Hours worked in another state do not count toward licensure in Arkansas unless they have been approved and certified by the Board of Pharmacy in the state in which you plan to work. You will need to contact the Board of Pharmacy in the state in which you plan to work to find out what you need to do to be licensed as an intern in that state and have the board in that state certify the hours to the Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy.
    If you need to contact the board in another state, go to the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) website at: .[FONT=FBDNMM+TimesNewRoman,BoldItali,Times New Roman]http://www.nabp.net .[FONT=FBDKOJ+TimesNewRoman,Times New Roman]On the left side of the web page you will see "Who We Are". Select it and then scroll down and select "Boards of Pharmacy." Here you will find a list of all of the boards and their contact information." ​
